Harry Potter



Here's two Diagon Alley concepts I did while working for the WB for Harry Potter. I wish I could do this sort of thing more often.

Freekin' fantastic. Wonderful balance of inks in these. Reminds me of my comic book days. Just delicious.

GREAT!!! the scenes are very credible, they're complex but very comprehensible too. Maybe some people walking around would give the secenes more live, but no doubt they're wonderful backgrounds!!

Thanks everyone! Much appreciated!

Usually on a layout drawing like this, i would miss the color, but these are SO well done with the blacks and the line weights, you just don't need it! These are really strong drawings, i'm in awe!

UrbanBarbarian said...

Thanks Tom! I think I would be a little scared to color these...! I would probably break out the Mignola Hardbound and see what the master has to say...!

Kristen McCabe said...

Wow these are Brilliant! I love your lines. I want to get a sandwich at Diagon Deli! ....Although I'm sorta afraid to find out what kind of sandwiches they serve.

UrbanBarbarian said...

I'd meet you there for a sandwich but I don't think I'd try those ill flavored jelly beans they're always going on about! ;)

...gosh, I'm a HP Geek! great...

Less Urban, more Barbarian!

I guess this is pretty urban, eh? And Harry Potter ain't exactly King Kull... I'll see what I can do!
